It's Time for March Madness!

"Ah, March! we know thou art
Kind-hearted, spite of ugly looks and threats,
And, out of sight, art nursing April's violets!"
~Helen Hunt Jackson

Well, since this month has arrived like a big ol' lion, in my neck of the woods anyway, it's time for me to announce my March Book-Blog Giveaway. And since this month is oh so long, I'm giving away two books: one on the 15th (can anyone tell me the significance of March 15, by the way??), and one at the very end of the month.

How do you enter? Simply leave comments on my blog. The more times you comment, the more chances you have to win. I'll pick two winners randomly from all commenters and announce the lucky ones right here!

What am I giving away? Well, this month I'm featuring Harlequin Historical author Jenna Kernan, who also just happens to be a member of my local RWA group. The March 15th winner will receive Jenna's very first book, the RITA-nominated Winter Woman, and the March 31st winner will receive her most recent release, Outlaw Bride.

Jenna's a terrific writer; you're bound to enjoy her books whether or not you've already discovered historical romances. So comment away...

"Beware the Ides of March"... poor Julius.

"Friends, Romans, Countrymen... lend me your ears. I come to bury Ceasar, not to praise him."

I played Marc Anthony once. *G*

Happy March!!

Happy March! I love March, for so many reasons. One, grass. Yes, I think we'll finally see grass in March. The lion's gotta leave eventually, LOL.

And the significance? Um, my book comes out on 15th? Does that count? :)

Have a nice weekend!

What a wonderful author and book give away. Maybe, March 15th is your birthday?! Thanks,Cindi

Extra points for Marianne...March 15 is indeed the Ides of March - the date Julius Caesar was assassinated.

But yes, Sarita, it absolutely counts that your book releases that day too :)

Does March 15 have something to do with the Ides of March?

Also March is my birth month.

Hey, I guess Ides of March before I read Allie's answer.
